services officials are there. days later kathleen sebelius says we're right on track to rolling out flawlessly october 1. are we to assume there was such a culture of intimidation or no drama within the white house that no one has had the courage or the responsibility enough to prime the president and say i just saw a presentation. this fall is going to be scary on the rollout? >> what is curious about that is kathleen sebelius was in the meeting. she was there. marilyn tavenner who runs c.m.s., they were there. they heard. one of the things mackenzie said was if your website is not working, the call centers can't get the stuff into the system. we found that out the hard way. they also said there is no single person in charge. this is a giant bureaucracy. you need a project manager. but the federal government said we can handle it. they couldn't. meanwhile it gets even worse. according to -- so that was that. they knew. they knew going back. how many times do we hear the president and his surrogates say if you like your plan, you can keep it? they have known for years that tens of m
's numbers aren't official. in her testimony this week, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius says the website's flaws make any early data unreliable. >> we do not have any reliable data around enrollment, which is why we haven't given it to date. >> reporter: her agency doesn't plan to issue its first report on enrollment figures until mid-november. but the first days overwhelmingly viewed as a disaster. a survey shows 80% of those polled have a negative impression of obama care implementation. just 14% say it's gone well, that the law has benefited them. but nearly one-quarter of americans say the affordable care act has caused them harm. steven portnoy, abc news, washington. >>> it's a major political headline overnight. did the president have second thoughts about joe biden. a new report claims the obama campaign thought of dumping biden for hillary clinton in the last election. bill daily says he did consider the idea. but decided it would not help the ticket. a top obama aide says there's no truth to the report. >>> america's most wanted fugitive has landed a job without

another scandal that they would stonewall, secretary kathleen sebelius admitted it might be possible that a convicted felon could collect the personal information of health care consumers while acting as the obamacare navigators. >> there is no federal requirement for navigators undergo a criminal background check, even though they will receive personal information from individuals that they hoped to sign up for an and the affordable care act spirit statement that is true, states could add an additional background check and other features and it is not part of the federal requirement. lou: secretary kathleen sebelius acknowledging that the early enrollment figures for obamacare which is scheduled to be released next week, will be very low. fox is reporting a relatively new provision in obamacare opening up the medicaid program to even more fraud. that according to a new medicaid director which is raising concerns about section 2202 of the four well-kept and he says that that section expands hospital use of the honor system when caring for the uninsured who claim that they fall into c
person, kathleen sebelius said today. >> well, there isn't, i would say, at this point a specific plan. we're looking at a number of options where there may be an opportunity for that number of people to look at plans that they have right now, but there isn't any specific proposal at table immediately. >> well tonight, two republican senators are using new numbers to suggest that obama care is not working. senior white house correspondent jim acosta joins us now. the news doesn't seem to be getting better for obama care. the initial enrollment numbers are expected to be low but the numbers there in washington d.c. are pretty stunning. >> they are depressingly low, anderson. we have letters prom people that participate in the obama care exchange in the district of columbia and released by senators. i have one in front of me right now. it says that they have up until october 24th of this year only blue shield. that the a very dismal performance. i will tell you house republican haves been eager to get their hands on these enrollment numbers and issued a subpoena to have them delivered by
the numbers. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was asked by congress about this she wouldn't give it. we know the number was beyond embarrassing. six people on day one. had a total of 248 by the next day. this has really stunned a lot of people. especially democrats, who voted for this. they basically summoned top white house officials including white house chief of staff to capital hill yesterday to explain this. you know they wanted to find out the numbers themselves. one of the senators, jeff merkel, he said we were all confident the system would be up and running by october 1st. they to the a really big surprise. we find out just how bad it really is. >> it is. they need 39,000 people a day. 39,000 people a day to reach the goal in march of seven million people they need to have signed up by then, is that right? >> that's right. the whole plan of obamacare they have to have enough people to sign up, especially enough younger and healthier people as opposed to older, less healthy people to sign up to make sure premiums just do not go through the roof. the figure they nee

requirement. >> secretary kathleen sebelius also acknowledge that the early enrollment figures for obamacare which are scheduled to be released next week will be very low. fox news tonight reporting a relatively new provision in obamacare, opening up the medicaid program to even more. that according to a former medicaid director who is raising concerns about section 2202 of the affordable care act. he says that section expands hospital used of the honor system when caring for the uninsured who then claimed that they fall into certain medicaid categories. if it is later found that the patient does not qualify for public assistance, the state is then responsible and then bistate we mean taxpayers. today marks the anniversary of president obama's reelection. but the white house still has little, if any reason to celebrate the second year of his second term. his job approval rating is down 40%, on par with george w. bush and the fall of his fifth year in office when he was reeling from the fallout of hurricane katrina. on wall street today, stocks mixed. the dow jones, a triple digit gain from a

, senators got their chance to question health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. meanwhile, the president flew to texas where he called out the state's lawmakers for not taking full advantage of the affordable care act. >> one of the things that sometimes gets me a little trust rated although i understand it because i'm in politics is folks who are complaining about how the website's not working and why isn't obama fixing this and all of these people are uninsured and let, they're leaving a million people right now without health insurance that they could immediately fix. there's not a lot of logic. >> republican congressman from texas, michael burgess sits on the house energy and commerce committee. congressman, good to see you. >> good morning, craig. >> while they may not all live in your district, what do you say to the president's criticism that by not opting to expand medicaid, at least, not opting to expand medicaid 1 million people who could have insurance in texas, do not. >> let's get a couple of things out there first. medicaid will continue to exist in texas as
